Bully Update

The pups will be 14 weeks old tomorrow - how time flies!  They are doing very well and growing so fast - its getting harder and harder to pick them up though! 

Potty training is so-so.  We are still having good days and bad days.  Although, we seemed to make some headway this past weekend *fingers crossed*.  They love going outside...they run and run which is hilarious.  I tend to not put them on leashes very often so they get exercise, but it tends to bite me in the butt from time to time.  They like to get under the back deck...which is no fun going under to get them.  And Stella loves to take off into the wooded area behind the house...and then I get to go hunt her down and coax her back through the thorns.

They are learning some words: "outside" (they will run to the backdoor, if they are in the mood), "water" (they start barking at me until I put the bowl down), "treat" (they just wiggle and follow you to where the treat jar is).  If I say "are you hungry?" they start prancing around and go to the pantry where their food is. They even understand "kennel up".  They take off running to their room, but of course look back to be sure you are following them with a treat, then get in their kennels.  Most of the time they sit without being told so they get their treat! 

Its a hectic life with two puppies and I wouldn't recommend it unless you have boatloads of patience and a ton of free time (which I don't), but I love it.

SmartVest Review & CF Appointment

Well, here is the long awaited official review of my new SmartVest SQL.  I don't have any current or updated vests to compare this too, so my feed back is based upon what I like/dislike versus the old and out-dated vest.

Pros:
Weight - it is MUCH lighter than my ancient Hilrom Vest.  By all means, it isn't light but definitely a great improvement from my older model.  I can at least carry it myself!Comfort of vest - the fabric is much softer and less scratchy when wearing it.Technology - it has a digital screen, so I can set the time and know for sure how long I'm using it (the old one had a knob to turn).  Also, I can set different programs based on how long I want to use it, etc.  It's quieter!!  Will still doesn't enjoy watching TV with me while I vest, but I don't have to turn the TV to its max volume!  And, the dogs aren't scared of this one as much!There is only 1 hose...so I'm not tangled up :)And it comes with a rolling case (that looks like a re…

Hello?

I'm back!!!

Unfortunately, I've been MIA due to some family medical stuff.  We had quite a scare with my stepdad.  Thankfully, he is out of the hospital and recovering!  He will be staying with Will and I for a while so we can help nurse him back to health.


I never thought about losing a parent before.  As I grew up, I lost my grandparents and understood that I would have to worry about losing others as they too got older.  But, I never imagined being 30 and having to think about a parent leaving my life.  What a scary thought.  It definitely got me thinking.

Life is precious.  I can't sweat the small stuff.  I shouldn't worry about stupid things that really don't matter.  You never know how much time you have left in this world, so enjoy every moment that you can.  Have fun!  Let those that you love know that you love them.

I am not done with my parents.  I still need them ALL.  I don't think that will ever change though.

Pupdate

My little bully babies are growing up.  Sarge & Stella turned 6 at the beginning of July and T-Bone turned 8 at the end of July.

We celebrated Sarge & Stella's birthday at home with some special treats from the local pet store.  T-Bone got to be at his favorite place on his birthday (our cabin in WV).  Unfortunately I was a bad dog mom and forgot his birthday hat and treat, but he got extra loving and sang to multiple times.

T-Bone had his bi-annual check up just before his birthday and had a good report.  We are changing his eyedrops due to the formula change in what he was using - it was making his eyes red and itchy. And then, in his ear (not the one that just had surgery) we noticed a tick like thing in one of the folds. He got very irritated with us when we messed with it, so thankfully his appointment was the next day, so I figured I'd let them piss him off.  Turns out, its not a tick.  The vet said it looked just like the mass that he saw in his other ear cana…
